The University of Adelaide may engage contractors to provide paid services to the organisation. Prior to engaging a contractor, it is essential to obtain the necessary information to determine if it is appropriate to engage them as a contractor, contingent worker or employee.
Contractors are not employees of the University, however, there are circumstances in which employer obligations such as superannuation and payroll tax apply to these individuals. In these circumstances the contractor must be paid through the Human Resources contractor payment process.
The contractor management process consists of two key stages: the assessment of contractor engagements and the payment of contractors.
There are detailed FAQs in each of the contracting topic areas below that give further guidance related to people based overseas, sham contracting, former staff and types of contracting engagements.
